WITH THE [STROKE] OF A PEN®, Claim your life

In 1999, Jane’s first husband was killed in an accident and she went from being a happily married woman one moment to a widow with a twelve-and-a-half-year-old daughter the next. A veteran of the life insurance industry, Jane had always thought that if anything were to happen, she would be better prepared to cope with the crisis than others would — wrong!

In her book WITH THE [STROKE] OF A PEN®, Claim your life, Jane has decided to ‘pay it forward’ and has shared not only her story and her daughter’s story, but also that of her second husband who lost his wife to terminal cancer and his experience with anticipatory grief. This book is both motivational and educational. With her experiences, she has compiled an extensive checklist to help individuals have courageous conversations not only with their loved ones, but also with their life insurance / financial advisor, personal lawyer, accountant, and funeral planner. This book is about helping people to prepare before an illness strikes or a crisis happens. It also offers wonderful help and guidance after someone has passed away.
